    I purchased a XS max and so far Im liking it. However Im not sure if I have a defective unit or this is a wide spread issue. If using the XS and watching video and or playing music sometimes audio only comes from the bottom speaker and not the headphone. I have not been able to figure out why this happens. After a fresh restart everything is back to normal. Debating if I should return or if this is just a software issue. For 1200 bucks it should be perfect. Anyone else having this problem? I saw someone else posted in the comment section of a youtube channel about it as well. How wide spread is this issue? Anyone know how to fix without having to do a daily restart?

    If it plays from both speakers after a reset, then the issue is more than likely a software matter. "Reset All Settings" or restore it and then set it up as a new device are my recommendations. If it continues after that, take it and your purchase receipt to the nearest Apple Store and get it swapped out.

    I have an iPhone XS and have the same exact issue. I am with AT&T and they stated they wouldn't do any defective device swaps in store and that I had to go through Apple. Went to Apple and they would only swap it with a "reconditioned" iPhone XS. So I kept mines. I think this is more a software issue because it gets resolved with a reboot of my phone. It's very annoying when I listen to music, play games or watch videos and the top speaker stops working... hope they release an update to fix this soon...

    I've seen this reported on reddit as well, so I agree that it's likely a software issue rather than a wide-spread hardware issue. For example, https://www.reddit.com/r/iPhoneXsMax...aker_problems/
